Re: Promoting questions
It is not really common to use SMS. Some promoters do, but everybody I know hates receiving them.
When you hand the list to the club, it should have first and last name. The rest kind of depends on the club, but really all they need is the names.
If the club lets you stand out front and count them, that is good, but I don't know many clubs that will do that. When you hand them your guest list, put in a box for them to check off, that way, they can check them off as they come in. Yeah, a lot of trust there.
You should get credit for all the bottles they order. Ask the club about commission, but don't take them at their first offer. The thing is, you have to show you have some chops before you can start really asking for a big commission. Once you start bringing in a lot of bottle buyers, you will be able to ask for more commission.
Most people organize them by first name, some by last name. Ask the club.
